Jon, I updated these shows last night and the MP3s have not been removed yet:

http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-details-db.php?id=11008

When I check the details of the files it's marked as do not make lossy derivations still. Can we not make that setting taper specific? Nothing I upload do I ever want to be MP3, and this is turning into a lot of hassle to have the MP3s removed.

There is a bug with audio20 (which those shows are on) and audio17, so I will remove them manually. You have to understand that what you consider to be a hassle is ten times harder on us - trying to make everyone happy isn't easy, so please have patience.

I gave explicit instructions a while back on how to make it so you don't have to check the box each time. Just upload a file called DIRNAME_rules.conf where the only contents are CAT.lossy and put in the show's directory (where the show's directory is called DIRNAME). Do this for every show you upload.

If this doesn't meet your needs, I suggest you hold off on uploading until we can get it where you want it to be. I am perplexed as to why it isn't working for you - other users are checking the box off just fine.

Thanks for your patience and continued contributions,

Jon

maybe we should add something like this to the faq? something as an info thing for people to understnad what will happen with the automated systems as far as mp3 creation / mp3 deletions.
